Huddersfield Railway Station is already a striking arrival place for visitors. However, the future Trans-Pennine Route rail upgrade, including a new platform, provides an opportunity to look at improving facilities in the station. This may include new cafes, restaurants and retail to improve the experience for passengers.

Enhanced train station

The Trans-Pennine Upgrade will provide opportunities to enhance the station with good quality waiting areas and a choice of eating, drinking and convenience shopping. Importantly, it is an opportunity to connect St George's Warehouse with the station and the rest of the town.

St George's Warehouse and a new Station Square

A new Station Square will provide an arrival space, drop off zone and new entrance to Huddersfield Train Station.

The lower levels of St George's Warehouse can be converted into a car park, with the upper floors converted into office space, apartments or a hotel. This will make better use of this site and connect the warehouse to the town.

The Estates Building

The Estates Buildings will be brought back into use. The ground floor is suitable for retail, while the upper floors could be converted into apartments.
